This module allows you to build a Arch Linux based container.


Use the arch module to specify a base for an Arch Linux based container. Arch Linux uses the aptly named the pacman package manager (all puns intended).


Bootstrap: arch

The Bootstrap keyword is always mandatory. It describes the bootstrap module to use.

The Arch Linux bootstrap module does not name any additional keywords at this time. By defining the arch module, you have essentially given all of the information necessary for that particular bootstrap module to build a core operating system.


Arch Linux is, by design, a very stripped down, light-weight OS. You may need to perform a fair amount of configuration to get a usable OS. Please refer to this and the Arch Linux example for more info.
